Colossal Order has finally pushed out the first major content update for Cities: Skylines.

Cities: Skylines fans have been waiting for this update for a while and this update comes with a whopping 72 new European styled buildings, the highly anticipated addition of tunnels, new maps,  asset editor updates, and bug fixes.

The patch is now live and the full notes are as follows:

  • Over 72 European style buildings
  • Wall-to-wall buildings enabling players to build those European streets and neighbourhoods
  • Three new starter maps
  • Tunnels, one of the community’s most requested features
  • A number of Asset Editor additions including the ability to import custom vehicles
  • A multitude of smaller cosmetic additions and bug fixes.

Please note:

  • The European style buildings are a map theme, meaning you will need to play a map in the European biome in order to see them.
  • Many mods and (some) custom assets will not work with 1.1.0 and will need updating by their author. We have worked hard to cause as few conflicts as possible with popular mods, yet this is a substantial update and with the code & functionality changes some issues have been impossible to avoid. Going forward we aim to find a solution where we can work with our core modders pre-launch to give them ample time to adjust their creations before the public have access.

Our brand manager (the handsome guy you’ve seen in several videos) has the following to say about the expansion plans for Cities: Skylines.

“Cities: Skylines will continue to follow the traditions set by other recent Paradox releases such as Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV of paid expansions combined with large updates of free content ensuring that all players, whether they choose to purchase the expansions or not, will have plenty of new features to look forward to. One of the major differences, however, between those titles and Cities: Skylines will be that minor DLC updates will be uncommon. The majority of content updates will be significant upgrades and additions.

Going forward, we will focus on giving away the main features for free and improving the modding tools, while also selling major expansions around new mechanics. But we will also continue to offer free content such as new buildings and road types.”
